complete bollocks.

to an extent yes. but thats only due to stunting the outside shape of the fish.

Think of it like this. Red Tail catfish, a fish which potentially grows to 5ff plus. Do you think a 6 inch baby one will stop growing at this sze because of a small tank

nah mate, completely aimed at the myth.

no trust me i hate the fish only grow to the tank myth. i work in a fish shop and we won't sell a fish into a small tank if it will outgrow it.

We get loads of calls saying my fish has got too big can you take it off me etc. then they come in and say a guy in the other shop said it would be fine.

I myself rescued a 2.5foot snakehead a few months back who outgrew his 3 foot tank. He's now in a 8 footer with some BIG severums
